The Minnesota Rokkr will temporarily be without their substitutes Devin “TTinyy” Robinson and Kaden “Exceed” Stockdale, as they both will be playing for Rebel Esports on a loan. It was made official by Rebel Esports’ Twitter page, confirming the loan.
Rebel needed two more players to complete their Challengers roster. The loan gives them a blend of youth and experience to go along with Steve “Mochila” Canle, Devin “LlamaGod” Tran and Aiden “Knight” Provenzano who also just joined the team.

This wouldn’t be the first time that TTinyy has played with Rebel Esports, as he had a stint with them as both a player and streamer last year. Meanwhile, this will be a new territory for Exceed who is one of the youngest players in the league.
The Rokkr are the only team to loan or trade any players so far this offseason in the Call of Duty League. It’ll be interesting to see how the team does without some of its depth.
They still have quite a bit of firepower with Adam “Assault” Garcia and Justin “Silly” Fargo-Palmer leading the way as the team’s veterans. It wouldn’t be a surprise if the Rokkr get a couple of players before the weekend, but for now, they have a steady lineup to roll with as they begin their season at home.
Launch Weekend will have a bracket, tournament-style approach, where winners advance and losers end up in the loser’s bracket. Two groups form the event with goups “A” and “B”.
The Rokkr will take on the Dallas Empire who cracked the top five on our CDL preseason power rankings and that has potential to be a dynamite matchup. If they win, they will take on the winner of the match between the Seattle Surge and Atlanta Faze in group A.
